UC Berkeley (Architecture)
I am an AutoCAD tutor who has worked his share of projects as a drafter and knows how to be efficient at what he does. Having worked in both residential and commercial architectural offices, I have the expertise and knowledge to help you in, among many things, creating an efficient workflow, setting up title blocks, creating dynamic blocks and setting up dimension styles.
I have a degree in architecture from the University of California, Berkeley and have worked as a tutor in numerous settings. Having tutored numerous students in not only AutoCAD but also Sketchup in both beginning and advanced skills, I have learned how to be accommodating to the needs and preferences of the student.
Through appointment, you can discuss with me about your goals and what you're trying to achieve. My approach is casual in that when we meet up, I will walk you through how to perform simple to advanced commands, AutoCAD best practices and the like. However, if you have an idea of how you want to be tutored, I can be accommodating to your preferences as well. I believe a knowledgeable student is a reflection of the skill of a good teacher so with every student, I strive to produce students who can excel in what they do.
I am only able to travel within SF and cannot travel outside the immediate proximity of SF. I apologize for the inconvenience. Students within SF will still be able to arrange sessions with me.
Please have your own laptop, a list of questions to start and an idea of what you want to achieve at the end of our lesson.
Also state which AutoCAD version you want me to teach you if you have a preference (my preference is to teach you the version you will use at work). About me:

After meeting with Wing for 1.5 hours, I feel that I am now able to effectively learn AutoCAD. Before, I was extremely lost and behind in my AutoCAD class. Now, though, I'm confident and up to speed with my peers. With ease, Wing clarified many details and commands, and he has given me the tools to proceed with way more certainty. I'm so happy that I've found Wing, as we undoubtedly will continue to meet.
Wing patiently clarified differences pertaining to Autocad for Mac and demonstrated easy to understand parallels for the commands in question. Now I can understand how to address layers, annotations scales, plotting line weights. He's patient and have a great teaching style for my speed of learning.
Wing gave me a thorough explanation of AutoCAD dimension styles , text styles, and setting up layouts for plotting. He's very knowledgeable and is a great tutor.
Though it is only my first meeting, I believe Wing is an excellent teacher for people who want to learn AutoCAD in the practical sense. He is patient and thorough in his teachings. I would recommend him to anyone who is intimidated by conventional computer training.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Since learning AutoCAD around 2007, I have taught AutoCAD to many friends, students from my local community college, co workers and Wyzant users. These lessons range from basic commands to more advance techniques such as creating dynamic blocks in order to be more efficient at drafting.
